OverviewIntroductionThe Official ASE Study Guide of Automobile Tests is intended to help techniciansstudy for the ASE certification tests. The information in this booklet covers thetechnology found in most all of today’s automobiles, sport utility vehicles, andlight trucks. The specific information about each test, found in the followingpages, should prove to be a useful tool for reviewing the technical knowledge thatis covered in the Automobile tests. After performing a thorough review, it shouldbe easier to select additional reference material that will assist you with your testpreparation needs.ASE voluntary certification is a means through which technicians can provetheir abilities to themselves, to their employers, and to their customers. By passing ASE tests you will earn the most valuable credential available to automotivetechnicians. Because the tests are tough, you’ll have the satisfaction of provingto yourself that you are among the elite in your profession. What’s more, thesecredentials are recognized throughout the nation.Certified technicians promote customer trust and improve the image of theindustry. And trust and professionalism are the first steps to a better, more prosperous business.ASE encourages you to take the tests and to join the proven pros who wearthe ASE Blue Seal of Excellence .How Do I Become Certified?There are nine tests in the Automobile Technician certification series. If youpass one or more tests, and have at least two years of hands-on working experience in automotive repair, you will become certified as an ASE AutomobileTechnician.If you pass tests A1 through A8 and meet the experience requirement, youwill earn the certificate of Master Automobile Technician. Note: Test A9 isnot required for Master Automobile Technician status. (Appropriate vocationaltraining may be substituted for up to one year of work experience.)If you are currently certified in Diesel Engines (A9, H2, S2, or T2)and Electrical/Electronic Systems (A6, H6, S6, or T6), you are eligible to take theL2 Electronic Diesel Engine Diagnosis Specialist test.If you fail a test, you may take it again during any subsequent test windowin which it is offered. And remember, you are the only one who will receive yourASE Automobile Study GuidePage 3

Overview (continued)tests scores; results will not be given over the phone nor will they be releasedto anyone without your written permission.This Study Guide contains Test Specifications, task lists, and samplequestions for the following ASE tests: Automobile Tests: Engine Repair (Test A1); Automatic Transmission/Transaxle (Test A2); Manual Drive Train and Axles (Test A3); Suspensionand Steering (Test A4); Brakes (Test A5); Electrical/Electronic Systems(Test A6); Heating and Air Conditioning (Test A7); Engine Performance(Test A8); and Light Vehicle Diesel Engines (Test A9) Service Consultant Test: Automobile Service Consultant (Test C1) Alternate Fuels: Compressed Natural Gas Vehicle (Test F1) Specialty Tests: Exhaust Systems (Test X1)You will become an Undercar Specialist when you pass the XI test andmeet the following requirements. You must be currently certified (including thetwo-year experience requirement) in the ASE Suspension and Steering (A4) andBrakes (A5) areas BEFORE you will be permitted to register and take the X1test. If your A4 and/or A5 certification has expired, you may NOT register for theX1 test until after you have renewed your A4 and A5 certification.ASE also offers certification in Medium/Heavy Truck, Truck Equipment,School Bus, Transit Bus, Collision Repair/Refinish, Parts Specialist, andAdvanced Level specialties. Separate Study Guides are available.For full information on ASE testing as well as downloadable Study Guides,other test preparation resources, and more, visit www.ase.com.Who Writes the Questions?The questions, written by service industry experts familiar with all aspects ofautomobile repair, are entirely job-related. They are designed to test the skills thatyou need to know in servicing automobiles; theoretical knowledge is not covered.Each question has its roots in an ASE “item-writing” workshop whereservice representatives from automobile manufacturers (domestic and import),aftermarket parts and equipment manufacturers, working technicians and vocational educators meet in a workshop setting to share ideas and translate them intotest questions. Each test question written by these experts must survive review byall members of the group. The questions are written to deal with practical problems of diagnosis and repair experienced by technicians in their day-to-day work.From there, all questions are pre-tested and quality-checked on a nationalsample of technicians. Those questions that meet ASE standards of quality andaccuracy are included in the scored sections of the tests; the “rejects” are sentback to the drawing board or discarded altogether.Page 4ASE Automobile Study Guide

You are only eligible to take theRecertification Test when you have previously passed the corresponding initial certification Test.How Do I Prepare for the ASE Tests?Become familiar with test content and question format: The Test Specificationsin this booklet contain a summary description of the content covered by eachtest. The Task Lists describe the actual work performed by technicians in eachspecialty area. Together, these form a “blueprint” for writing and assemblingthe ASE tests.ASE Automobile Study GuidePage 5

Overview (continued)Please note that each question on the test is keyed, or linked, to a particulartask or set of tasks in the task list. Therefore, a review of the task lists, with aneye to judging whether you know how to perform each task listed, will provideyou valuable information as you prepare for the tests.There are five types of multiple-choice questions on the tests, each of whichis included in the sample questions in this booklet. Note the different instructionsfor each question type.Be sure to read each question carefully, (twice, if necessary) so that youunderstand exactly what is being asked. Each question tests a specific diagnosticor repair problem and has only one correct answer.To summarize, we suggest the following steps be taken:Step 1. Study the content list for each test you will attempt.Step 2. Carefully read the task list for each area.Step 3. Go over the sample questions to become familiar with each questiontype. This is very important.Step 4. Review steps 1 through 3 and identify the skill area(s) where you needadditional study.Types of Knowledge Measured By the TestsThe types of knowledge and skills you will need to know to pass the tests are asfollows: Basic technical knowledge: Tests your knowledge of what is in a system andhow the system works, and what are the proper procedures and precautions tobe followed in making repairs and adjustments. Service or repair knowledge and skill: Tests your understanding and abilityto apply generally accepted repair procedures and precautions in assembly,disassembly, and reconditioning operations; and in making inspections andadjustments. Also tests your ability to use shop manuals and precision toolsof the trade. Testing and diagnostic knowledge and skill: Tests your ability to recognizeproblems and to use generally available measurement and testing equipmentto make a diagnosis. Also tests your ability to trace the effects of a particularcondition and find the cause of a particular set of symptoms.If you are an experienced and knowledgeable technician, a careful review ofthis booklet, and additional brush-up on those areas in which you are weakest, isall you should need to pass the ASE tests.Page 6ASE Automobile Study Guide

Overview (continued)Before The TestsTry to be well-rested for the test so you will be alert and efficient. Be sure tobring along your test center admission ticket and a current photo I.D. Lockerswill be provided for personal items, including cell phones.At the Test Center—Some TipsArrive early enough to park and find the Test Center office. Late arrivals may beturned away by the Test Center staff. If you cannot take a test because you arelate, you will forfeit your test fees.Bring your Admission Ticket and photo ID with you. Books, calculators,and other reference material will not be permitted in the test room. You will beassigned a locker to store all your personal items (cell phone, coat, hat, etc.)No electronic devices are allowed in the test room.You will receive scratch paper and pencils, and if you are taking anAdvanced Level test, a Composite Vehicle booklet. Once you are seated,the supervisor will explain how to use the computer and mouse. Each testappointment begins with a short tutorial that will help you become familiarwith the operation of the computer-based test. You can also preview the systemonline at www.ase.com/cbt before you go to take your test.Each test has a specific time limit, as listed earlier. As you take each test,the computer screen will continuously display the amount of time left. You cantake a break if necessary, but the clock will continue to run. If you finish early,you may review your answers or continue to the next test, if your appointmentincludes multiple tests. Once you submit a test for scoring, you cannot go backand review it.If a question is difficult, mark the answer that you think is correct andflag the question using the on-screen button. Then go on to the next question.When you have finished the test, you may have time to go back to those questionsyou have flagged. Your score is based on the number of correct answers that yougive, so it is to your advantage to answer every question.When you finish your last test, you will be given a short customer satisfaction survey. When you complete it, you can report to the staff and receive yourscore reports.ASE Automobile Study GuidePage 7

Overview (continued)Test Content and Sample QuestionsThe following material is designed to help technicians prepare for the ASEcertification tests.Each section begins with the Test Specifications, which will list the maincategories covered on that particular test and the number of test questions andpercentage of the test devoted to each topic.The Task List describes the work activities a technician should be able toperform in each technical area covered on that test. This list was developed byworking technicians and technical experts from across the country and willprovide a valuable check list of what to study for the test.These task descriptions offer detailed information to technicians preparingfor the test and to persons who may be instructing technicians. The task lists mayalso serve as guidelines for question writers, reviewers, and test assemblers.It should also be noted that the number of questions in each content area maynot equal the number of tasks listed. Some of the tasks are complex and broadin scope and may be covered by several questions. Other tasks are simple andnarrow in scope and one question may cover several tasks. The main objectivein listing the tasks is to describe accurately what is done on the job, not to makeeach task correspond to a particular test question.Sample questions follow. Although these same questions will not appear onactual tests, they are in the same format as actual test questions. All five types ofmultiple-choice questions used on the ASE tests are represented here. Note thedifferent instructions for some questions. Page 8ASE Automobile Study Guide
